The following is a press release from artist Joel Richardson:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CITY MEETING REGARDING JOEL RICHARDSON’S DUPONT STREET MURAL ERASED BY THE CITY
In June the City of Toronto painted over the mural of artist Joel Richardson, a mural the City had commissioned Richardson to paint. After realizing the mistake the city invited Richardson to paint another mural on the same spot.
On July 28th Richardson along with Graffiti writer AMOS, will unveil their new design for the Dupont Street Mural.
The meeting will take place at St. Luigi’s Catholic School, on July 28th, at 7pm. The meeting will be a referendum on Richardson and AMOS’s new mural design.
Richardson and AMOS invite press, artists, and the community to come out and vote, wear a suit and tie to support their new mural plans.
Councilor Ana Bailao will host the meeting.
Bomb Shelter owner and Street Art go to guy ZION will also be in attendance to speak of the importance of art on our streets in a continued campaign to gain recognition of the importance and relevance of Street Art.
Joel, Zion, and Amos will be available for interviews.
